Regarding limited shows and mp3 derivatives on uploaded shows, Gary said: "whatever you want to do for the time being is cool with me. may be getting
into business with a distributor, and they may have opinions on the subject at some point, but for now I think it's all good.
could you send me the audio . . . as high quality as possible?
thanks for asking homey, I appreciate it
On February 15, 2004, Bill Silva Management gave their OK for Gary Jules live shows to be hosted at archive.org.
This is to give you permission to host gary jules taped shows for trading. You can see our taping policy at www.garyjules.com and contact me with any questions.

GARY JULES OFFICIAL TAPING POLICY RIDER
Gary Jules allows audio taping at almost every live performance. We feel
that each show is unique and want to offer our fans the opportunity to
recreate the live experience through the audio reproduction of our
shows. At all taping authorized performances, tapers can tape from any
ticketed seating location in the venue. Also, for many of these
performances tapers are able to purchase tickets for a specially
designated taper section, normally located immediately behind the
soundboard. No soundboard or power feeds are provided. When Gary Jules
is not headlining a show we always defer to the taping policy of the
headliner or the festival.
Taping is limited to audio-only, using only microphones. Please, no
wireless receivers. We sincerely appreciate all of our fans, so we ask
that you please be considerate of those around you by not obstructing
anyone else's view of the performance. We do not allow still
photography or video taping.
When taper tickets are available for a particular show, they
released concurrently with general seating tickets. To obtain designated
taper tickets, contact the venue's box office.
All recordings must be used for personal use or trading only. Selling or
commercializing any recording is illegal. Please read our Bootleg
Statement for more information.
From time to time we may record some of our shows for a live album or
DVD, and we may not allow taping at those shows or we may notify you
that we are going to commercially release our tapes from the show at
which time we will ask you to withdraw all of your tapes from that
show(s) from further trading.
All audio and video performances belong to Gary Jules and are not
available for promotional use without the prior written consent of Gary
Jules. Please read our Bootleg Statement for more information.
Gary endorses the creation of fan web sites; however, the images,
audio, and video material found on www.garyjules.com belongs to Gary Jules

A notice to our fans about Bootleg Recordings:
We would like to let you know that Gary encourages the taping of his
performances, but only for personal use, including trading, as outlined
in the Taping Policy Statement. The resale of recordings of our concerts
is a concern to us, but primarily, they are an illegal use that threaten
the taping privileges. We would be extremely grateful to any of you who
pass along information about commercialized bootleg recordings. We
encourage you to fax us the name and locations of any retailers or
distributors of bootleg CD's along with the titles and quantities in
stock. We can be reached by fax at 310-858-0648 attn: Jules Info.

purposes only. Unauthorized sale, duplication and/or distribution is
strictly forbidden. All Gary Jules performances and recordings are the
exclusive property of Gary Jules. All rights reserved. The privileges to
record Gary Jules performances set forth in this policy constitute an
express, revocable license. We reserve the right to withdraw our

necessary. No waiver of any copyright or trademark right is intended.
